» The New Ecology of Things: Slabs, Sofducts, and Bespoke Objects Johnny Holland – It's all about interaction » Blog Archive
"Several major trends are emerging that affect interaction design. With the advent of post-PC devices like the iPad, cheap sensors and microcontrollers like the Arduino, and services like Kindle Wispersync, we’re in the middle of a shift towards ubiquitous computing, tangible interaction, and cloud services. Because of these trends, our field must consider the integration of the traditionally separate areas of screen and tangible interaction design.

Of particular significance is the shift away from the generic computation typified by the “personal computer,” which never really achieved the individuality or specificity implied by the term “personal.” In short, we’re experiencing the emergence of The New Ecology of Things, where a network of heterogeneous, smart objects and spaces are replacing our current design context."

Why video games are indeed Art - Our far-flung correspondents
"A beautifully designed videogame invokes wonder as the fine arts do, only in a uniquely kinetic way. Because the videogame must move, it cannot offer the lapidary balance of composition that we value in painting; on the other hand, because it can move, it is a way to experience architecture, and more than that to create it, in a way which photographs or drawings can never compete. If architecture is frozen music, then a videogame is liquid architecture."

Phasing Dancing Stands « Cory Arcangel's Internet Portfolio Website and Portal
"These sculptures are made from 2 over the counter 'Dancing Stands' (the tacky kinetic product display stands you can often see in down market stores) which have been modified to spin at slightly different speeds. When my modified stands are placed next to each other they go in and out of phase about every 4 minutes. I first showed a version of these sculptures in my show "Creative Pursuits" at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. Below is a video of a version of these sculptures in action at my show The Sharper Image at the Museum of Contemporary Art Miami (the music is is Dj Icey, a nod to Miami)."

Uberorgan [see video at: http://video.whyy.org/video/1237794459/program/1217143847/topic/1217148136#]
Tim Hawkinson and the Uberorgan are featured the Art:21 episode,"Time." Seeing and hearing the piece, even on the small screen, is impressive, and Hawkinson explains how he came about creating such a voluminous, volume-driven work of art.

Maker Profile - Kinetic Wave Sculptures on MAKE: television on Vimeo
"Reuben Margolin, a Bay Area visionary and longtime maker, creates totally singular techno-kinetic wave sculptures. Using everything from wood to cardboard to found and salvaged objects, Reuben’s artwork is diverse, with sculptures ranging from tiny to looming, motorized to hand-cranked. Focusing on natural elements like a discrete water droplet or a powerful ocean eddy, his work is elegant and hypnotic. Also, learn how ocean waves can power our future.

Frieze Magazine | Editors' Blog | A Change of Scenery
"Danish art, architecture and engineering group N55 are currently displaying their latest proposal for future living on the streets of Cambridge. Walking House, commissioned by Wysing Arts, is a living capsule that is able to move itself around, roughly at the same speed as a human might walk or, say, flood levels might rise. Indeed the group envisage a dystopic future in which nomadism is not a lifestyle preference, but a necessity brought on by unstable and treacherous environmental conditions."

BLDGBLOG: A breeze-driven pavilion and some bridge-machines
"Michael Jantzen's Wind Shaped Pavilion is "a large fabric structure that can be used as a public or private pavilion. As a lightweight fabric structure, the wind slowly and randomly rotates each of the six segments around a central open support frame."
